DC Superior Court Judge Milton Lee rescheduled a preliminary hearing in a domestic violence case due to the defense wanting more time to continue plea negotiations. 

The 18-year-old defendant is charged with assault with intent to kill, assault with a dangerous weapon, four counts of assault with intent to kill while armed, and four counts of possession of a firearm during crime of violence. He allegedly shot his ex-girlfriend’s new partner on Aug 2. on the 1600 block of Fort Dupont Street, SE.

During a Sept. 26 hearing, defense attorney Craig Ricard, asked for more time to speak with his client to discuss the plea offer.

Judge Lee rescheduled the preliminary hearing for Oct. 18.
